Section 18 valuations place a ceiling, or cap, on the amount of costed repairs [dilapidations] that a landlord can claim against a tenant. (dilapidations cap valuations)Every landlord or tenant will be concerned with dilapidations matters at some point during, and invariably at the end of, a lease.
A landlord may require such in order to comply with the "Pre-Action Protocol", this to be served upon the tenant with the costed repairs schedule. A tenant may require one to establish whether or not this statutory cap, or ceiling, might serve to reduce their dilapidations payment to the landlord.
Often this reduction is significant.
